We are thrilled to welcome this year’s Shinshinit to our community.
During 2019-20, Temple will be participating in the Shinshinim program for the fifth year in a row. The Shinshinim program arrived in Montreal in 2015. Eight Israeli teens spend the year in between high school graduation and their service in the Israeli Army, (the IDF), volunteering at more than 26 organizations and programs across the Montreal Jewish community, strengthening the relationship between Montreal and Israel. These outstanding young people undergo a rigorous selection process; our Shinshinim are always interesting, talented and open to experiencing life in Montreal. The Shinshinim live with host families while serving our community. If you might be interested in hosting a Shinshin, contact Rabbi Greenspan for more information.
In September, we will welcome Noam Friedler as our Shinshinit for 2019-20. Born and raised on Kibbutz Yifat, in the Jezreel Valley, in northern Israel, Noam enjoys theatre, photography and art.
In addition to serving at Torah School and Temple, Noam will volunteer at UTT School and Maimonides School. When you meet Noam in the fall, be sure to give her a big welcome!
